to the fundamental disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama. and that is that we will fundamentally change the focus of the economic policies. we will focus on the middle- class because it is when the middle class is growing that the economy grows and everybody does well. much as the focus on corporate america. >> i think the commission also. it is a privilege to be here and speak with americans. a good barometer here to see if this was a good time are a bad time in america's economy -- go to a kids' soccer game on saturday and turn any parent on the sideline and say how are you feeling about the economy and i bet you you will hear some fear in that parents voice. fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. did we just take a major hit with those investments? fear about how will we afford to send our kids to college. a fear as small-business owners on how we will bar any made to increase inventory or hire more people. the barometer will be resoundingly that our economy is hurting and the federal government has

say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context, at the end of world war ii
feed a state senator who was under scandal, who saw barack obama win the u.s. senate race because his main opponent took his wife to strip clubs who won the presidency after eight years of george w. bush. i don't think he's had his back against the wall. i love it. it's fascinating to see the character of this man and see how he responds. >> well, you know, you can't show up to the next debate if you're the president of the united states clearly accompanied by a level of disdain that was so apparent visually. what am i doing here with this guy? he had absolutely no respect for mitt romney. you know, you hear that over and over again internally, but he showed it visually. he showed it when he was on stage with governor romney the other night. he cannot show up like that again. >> it was also a strategy, though. he was playing four corners offense. he felt like he had a lead and took the air out of the ball. he can't afford to do that. there's still four weeks left. he'll be a totally different guy in the next debate. >> i don't think so. i think he arises to the occasion and it will be
use today say, walk softly, talk softly but carry a big stick. senator obama likes to talk loudly. >> senator mccain, this is the guy who sang bomb, bomb, bomb iran. who called for the annihilation of north korea. >> all right. it's a delicate line these candidates will have to walk next week with a live studio audience right near them. >> sure. it just changes the vibe completely because you know and i know that they don't have any problem kind of challenging you, challenging a reporter, somebody that they're familiar with. they can be really tough on you and say, hey, that's not true. they don't have a problem shouting you down. but if you have a bunch of undecided voters watching you, there's a couple things. first of all, you can't be too hot. you can't be too aggressive because that vibe is bad in the room. second of all, all the theatrics of it for them. which is the you have to talk to them and you have to seem like you're relating to them. so i think it adds a whole other level of performance if you will to what they're saying. it's also very hard to evade a question that
on the obama administration after a tense house hearing thursday. the senate will now begin their own investigation into the attack. joining me now is the former state department officer and former deputy director of the national security network. joel, glad to have you here. vice president biden criticized for saying he did not know u.s. officials in benghazi had even asked for more support. today, delaware attorney general beau biden coming to his father's defense. >> he was speaking for himself and the president, as you heard jay carney tell you in the briefing room the other day. >> do you think the average voters understands the difference between the state department knowing about those requests and the white house knowing? >> i think the average voter will understand this as this is communicated publicly, and it needs to be communicated. what can't happen is that there becomes a sense that this went to the president's desk. the president does not approve every request for funding for security at our consulates and our embassies overseas. certainly, the administration has been h

there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when
we're going to cover until the election day. they backed then senator obama by double digits four years ago. now women voters are evenly split on the president and mitt romney. erasing an 18-point lead that the presidt had just last month. maria cardona is in washington, or as i like to call her, mcdmc. republican strategist and cnn contributor in new york is ana navaro there. >> i like what l.c. calls me, the solution. >> that's right. we came up with that. >> can we believe the numbers? how is this going to shape tonight's vice presidential debate if anybody is putting stock in these numbers? >> i think the movement clearly come comes from the bounce that mitt romney enjoyed from his performance last week. the question, is it sustainable? look, there's no question that there was nowhere to go but up for mitt romney. because the gap was so big. the question is going into tonight's debate, will it hold? and that's going to be a big question. and i'm going to say probably not. because mitt romney gave us a big opening, even just yesterday where he continued to, i would say flip flo
with 52%. rasmussen has now moved the virginia senate race from toss- up to leaning democratic. >>> president obama spent the night in california at a fundraising concert in los angeles with a roster full of hollywood stars including actor george clooney, katie perry, stevie wonder, just to name a few. mitt romney is back in the battleground state of virginia today to deliver a speech on foreign policy at the virginia military institute in lexington. >>> two big tech firms in china are getting the cold shoulder from u.s. lawmakers. the house intelligence committee today releases a report warning american companies they should not do business with two chinese firms. the house panel says the firms pose a threat to national security based on recent cyberattacks traced to china. a maryland congressman spoke out last night on 60 minutes. >> we have evidence that china has been taxing us on a regular basis, even now as we speak that china has been taking a lot of our trade secrets, our papt ents from all of our different companies to do better in competition with us. -- our pat he wa
but there is so. there is no. over the last few years under the leadership of both senators dodd and casey, the obama administration and congress have provided new key investment in early learning and children's health programs, including the $500 million fo for the race toe top early learning challenge act fund, over $3 billion in new early head start and early head start and head start funding, and nearly $33 billion in new funds for the childress health insurance program, which also expanded coverage to 4 million new children. simply put, strong investments in education and health for the next generation are essential to ensuring the economic prosperity and security of america. and deeper investment, particularly and early childhood education means something their personal to me, and not just because i have about 50 little kids at my house. at least that's what it feels like. these investments are fundamental to breaking the cycle of poverty in places like when all to washington and places like my home state of west virginia. actually all over the country. where poverty has gripped fami

that we end up with the sum of governments that we have today. we have barack obama back in the white house, democrats are holding the senate, and republicans holding the house. can you outline what you would like to happen? the thing that would be the easiest if we had republicans in the senate and in the white house as well? what happens if you have to do business, and especially with the divided government we have had? how come to get things done in washington? we have not been able to get things done in the last four years. >> the reality will face us because of the things you have been talking about. we are either in making a big deal or we are not. we are either getting the debt limit extended or not. we are either keeping a more modest but fairly important economic growth, or we are not. those issues are going to bring people to a fundamental reality that might be the same structure, but i hope not. it may be the same structure or division of authority, but it is not the same time. with it. -- you can either fix it or live with it. >> if we have the same make up that we have, p

that when obama got into office, he got no leadership experience. he never voted in the senate. he rode the fence on both wars. he never cast a vote for or against on either were. he started his campaign as soon as he hit a house. he never did do anything. he had zero experience on being in the political field. he has not shown any leadership since. he leaves very strong towards withalistic society ways, the national health care. i believe he wants to take away our gun rights and hand them over to the u.n. for them to control, and to have them be in control of our constitutional laws. his moral fiber as a parent and a husband and a father of two children -- his moral fiber, he compromises to the gay community for votes. no husband or father would ever been his moral code to say it is ok for gays to be married to one another. if you tear down the moral fiber of this country, you tear down god's protection as well. why do you think we have droughts and hurricanes and tornadoes growing in a larger scale? host: we have a couple more calls. president obama, just a few minutes ago, in ohio. m
? >> well, it gets into detail, and i have a whole chapter on this, and it has to do with six senators saying, gee, we can ask for more revenue, it included three more republicans. david plouffe, who's the president's political adviser, campaign manager in 2008, has tremendous influence in the obama white house. am i pointing the right direction? is the white house that way? is yes, okay. and he said, we've got to do something, we have to ask for more revenue. and one of clinton's -- one of obama's other advisers came this and said -- came in and said if you don't ask for more revenue, you will be part of the presidency, the weakest presidency in the history of mankind. i mean, imagine being in that situation, getting that advice from one of your aides. so the president picked up the phone and said we need more revenue. he insists it was an offer speaker boehner is equally insistent that it was a demand. i talked to him, talked to all the people. now, no one else was in the room, there's no secret tape recording of that phone conversation i know about. if anyone does, please, give me a
, including a senator who was one of those tutoring the president, even playing the role of barack obama for that debate. what we also noticed how few democratic operatives were in that crowd not wanting to fuel any questions about what was then considered the president's lackluster performance. in a long winded way, what happens, you learn a lot in this spin room, how it's spun and how many are doing the spinning after the fact. you also learn a lot that's unique to fox business and our coverage how the foreign markets and our own future markets are responding. they had been seizing this as a good night for the republicans. i'm not saying the entire financial community is a republican crowd but by in large they espouse those positions. they were jumping during and immediately after the debate. you will be able to gauge as always market reaction and how the markets are spinning it from way outside the spin room. tracy: it is going to be fun. ashley: it really is. neil, is it really in this case more that can be lost than gained? would a good performance by either candidate make much diff

right at this minute now as we welcome governor palin and senator biden. >> reporter: the reason this is going to be a different encounter is because of all the progress that mitt romney made against president obama in last week's debate. he's gaining in the polls which puts a lot of pressure on vice president bide ton try to stem that momentum. you can expect some feisty exchanges like we saw in 1984 and four years later. >> let me help you with the difference between iran and the embassy in lebanon. >> i almost resent vice president bush patronizing attitude that you have to teach me about foreign policy. i've been a member of congress for sixth six years. >> i have as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did when he sought the presidency. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: now, larry, i had a great conversation yesterday with former senator bob dole who of course both of us know. bob dole said he expects joe biden to come out swinging and not to let up. and in

.s. senator in connecticut is very close. the battle between the republican linda mcmahon and chris murphy has been particularly nasty. their debate yet no different. >> i think obama care was put into place to bring down the cost curve on health care and that's not what is happening. insurance premiums is going up and the cost of health care is going up, and we are going to add 10 million more people to the health care roles. >> let's fix the bill and make it right and not repeal it. you can't preserve the good parts while getting rid of the parts you don't like, and that can't happen. >> the two are vying for the seat now held by lieberman, an independent now retiring. >>> and then a drone shot down after it crossed into israeli territory over the weekend. nobody was injured in the incident. the unmanned plane was not carrying explosives and was not a surveyance drone. officials don't believe it originated from palestinian area. the immediate suspect is hezbollah, according to one report. >> and the focus domestically is now here, and the world is a volatile place, and the idea there still c
jumped out of my seat and was satisfied with this whole debate. if obama loses, it was because he didn't kick congress in their ass every day of this campaign. i watched the debate in 2004 and the president of the senate got after john edwards about -- if he would have did that, whoo! it would have been over. >> bill: yeah. i loved that -- when he pointed out that one of the reasons -- when joe biden pointed out that one of the reasons we're in this mess is this guy right alongside of me voted for two wars and put it on a credit card. he nailed paul ryan on that one. good job joe. more calls coming up. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: oh, boy. 33 minutes after the hour now. friday morning. all right glad to see this weekend come, any weekend come actually, and we have lots to celebrate this morning before get into the weekend here on the "full court press." good to have you with us. we'll get back to your calls about last night's debate. boy martha raddatz gets a lot of praise compared to jim lehrer.

down and that does help republicans down the ballot, it means they will pick up senate seats, and they're not going to lose as many house seats as maybe they worried about predebate. >> giving the obama campaign or the inability to let the debate go in terms of the dialogue, what do you hear about the cold hand of fear grabbing chicago? >> well, it is. and it's funny, look, whenever there's a bad moment in a campaign, then suddenly fingers begin pointing, so then there is what's going on with debate prep, how come that didn't go well, that's just naturally someone that was part of it not wanting to take full blame. so there it's a little bit of that. i think you're going to see internally that nothing's changed. but i'm hearing chatter that maybe some people from the last debate are going to at least get involved in the debate prep process. he will bring in some of these sharpest communicators to do that. >> and of course as i said to my friends in the obama administration, every administration as many seasons, every campaign has many seasons, last week, a lot of people were saying thi
